Caterpillar has given its dealers a systematic inspection program for used equipment that ensures machine condition is evaluated carefully and consistently. Machines for sale at CatUsed.com will either be Caterpillar Certified Used Equipment or Cat Dealer Certified. All equipment must pass the same inspection, but units wearing the Caterpillar certification must also have had dealer-approved maintenance since new. Light and heavy construction products will be less than five years old with less than 7,000 hours, and compact products will be less than three years old with less than 2,000 hours on the meter.
CatUsed.com includes photographs and inspection reports for each machine listed. Sixty-five North-American Cat dealers list their used machines on the site, making about 9,000 machines available for sale (there are also 1.25 million used parts available for sale). When you want to buy something, you are connected with your local dealer, and the dealer is responsible for getting machines from other dealers' inventories if necessary.
